If you ever find yourself in Chicago the second Saturday of the month,  and you have a craving for some Torsk, the solution may be a visit to the Chicago Torske Klub. - Stavanger Aftenblad - 26 May 2006

Welcome to the Chicago Torske Klub Web Site at torskeklub.org! It's good to be in Chicago on the second Saturday of the month.  We will update this monthly for current events and dinner meeting news.

October 13, 2018 - Mount Rushmore

We'll gather for our second luncheon of the season with our scheduled speaker, Jim Weren, who will talk about sculptor Gutzon Borghum and Mount Rushmore. Our torskemaster is Sam Smith.

The reservation line is open now.

September 8, 2018 - Reconvene for Lunch after Summer Break- NovaCare

Our first luncheon of the 2018-2019 season was on September 8, 2018 with a discussion of healthcare rehabilitation with Susan Raine of NovaCare Rehabilitation. NovaCare Rehabilitation is part of the Select Medical Outpatient Division, a nationally prominent, locally driven provider of outpatient physical rehabilitation, sports medicine, hand health and work health. Many of us have experienced physical rehab for one reason or another, but one of members, Fred Durler, has benefitted and served as our Torskemaster and witness of this service.

The reservation line is open now.

September 9, 2018 - Torske Klub will be at Vasa Park

The annual Vasa Park Scandinavian Days event was held at Vasa Park on the day after our luncheon. We hosted a table to publicize our group as we have done in recent years. Thanks to Lowell Olberg, David Langseth, Ken Larson, and Ken Nordan for helping.
